  • Letter: Lyme disease an epidemic

    Lyme disease is the No. 1 vector-borne infectious disease in the U.S. today and Kentucky is no different.

  • >>READERS VIEW: Don’t throw clippings in the road

    To the editor,

    Please, people, do not throw grass clippings on the road.  This can make the road very slippery and dangerous, especially to motorcycles and bicycles.

  • >> READERS’ VIEWS: We must speak up

    To the editor,

    Children of immigrants at our southern border are being ripped out of their parents arms. Imagine such a scene and the pain that is going on there. These poor people do not get our news, they are not aware of what awaits them.

  • >> READERS’ VIEWS: Clarifying the issue of the Bloomfield cell tower

    Clarifying the issue of the Bloomfield cell tower

    The Kentucky Standard’s March 13 article on the Bloomfield cell tower contains many inaccuracies and a basic misunderstanding of the issues at hand. First and foremost, no one is opposed to the idea of a cell tower to provide much needed cell service to Bloomfield. The issue is the location and design of the tower.

  • LETTER: Thanks to those who stopped to help

    On the afternoon of May 22 my husband and I had a terrifying rollover accident on the Bluegrass Parkway. We ended up in the median with the truck upside down.
    We want to thank the good people who stopped to help us and called for the ambulance. Thankfully, we survived with no broken bones, just a lot of bruises.
    God bless you all for being so kind.
    Don and Elsie Matteson

  • LETTER: The biggest Afternoon with the Past

    Thanks to all those that helped in any way with May 12’s An Afternoon With the Past. We think this year’s crowd was the biggest yet. This year’s theme was “Bloomfield Treasures.” Thanks to all those that brought their items for all to enjoy.  Special thanks to the David Cody Prewitt family for going to so much trouble to get the Model-A Ford there. 
    Many thanks to all that donated too. I would especially like to thank Wilson & Muir Bank for being a major sponsor of this annual event.

  • LETTER: On the Woodlawn Springs debacle

    To the editor,
    As I left my home this morning for work, I could not help but notice what appeared to be a family of three jogging along the cart paths of the now defunct Woodlawn Springs Golf Course. It was a pleasure to see and a reminder of why our Fiscal Court of Nelson County should consider acquiring the property as an addition to our County Recreation Department. Given its proximity to the current Dean Watts Park only separated by Highway 605 (Woodlawn Road) it would be a somewhat contiguous addition to our existing parks and recreation program.

  • Letter: Thanks for getting things accomplished

    To the editor,

    Since late 2016, I have been in contact with our local officials about naming a bridge that is on the new 31E north of Bardstown.

    My requests to the ones involved in the county fall on deaf ears. So many different responses were told to me that I won’t bore you. When 2018 came, it was time to go a different route.

  • Letter: Let’s continue to make the Bruckheimers feel welcome

    To the editor,

    I am writing this letter in defense of Linda and Jerry Bruckheimer.

    While we absolutely need a cell tower — Bloomfield cell service downtown is horrible — Mrs. Bruckheimer opposes the current location.

    From everything I’ve read, I remember being on her side when we opposed a bypass that would have relocated Highway 55 to completely bypass the downtown.

    Mrs. Bruckheimer is also a strict historical preservationist, as you can tell by the beautiful renovations to the downtown district.
